Phils Game Music Similarities #30 - Contra Blessings


For the 30th entry of the primary blog, I have decided to return to the Contra series.

This series has a special little jingle that you may occasionally get to hear if you start playing it at age 3 and go Super Saiyan no later than age 6: The level completed tune ("Mission accompished"). This is the instance from Contra 3 - The Alien Wars ("Contra Spirits") from 1992:

Several people (mostly Youtube commenters) agree that this tune is reminiscent of a recurring sample from the song "God Bless Video" by the band Alcatrazz (1985):

Getting to hear this tune with the same frequency in game involves a lot of strategically placed suicides and smart bombs.
